Manchester City Vs. Stoke City, 2011 FA Cup Final: Stoke Lineups

Matt Etheringonton and Robert Huth were both injury doubts for Stoke City on the eve of their biggest game of the season, but both start in a 4-4-2 for the Potters, and that should make things much more interesting at Wembley. This is a strong Stoke side - they won't be favourites against Manchester City but could well run things very close here.

Thomas Sorensen starts in goal with a back line of Marc Wilson, Ryan Shawcross, Robert Huth, and Andy Wilkinson, and Etherington starts at left midfield with Rory Delap at central midfield/quarterback. Delap will be alongside an actual footballer* in Glenn Whelan, with Jermaine Pennant on the right, and Tony Pulis will use his tried and trusted strike partnership of Jonathan Walters and Kenwyne Jones, both dangerous hitmen in their own right.

*Said with much love for Rory Delap.

Stoke City (4-4-2): Thomas Sorensen; Marc Wilson, Ryan Shawcross, Robert Huth, Andy Wilkinson; Matt Etherington, Rory Delap, Glenn Whelan, Jermaine Pennant; Jonathan Walters, Kenwyne Jones
